Once broken, the code breaker might make and sell open copies? Myself, I expect file sharing will heat back up soon with the use of some soon to be invented stealthware. In any case, copy protection will egg on the traders I believe. As long as analog outputs exist, copy protection is TOTALLY laughable anyway. If the Musezak Kompanies really want to move product, maybe they should sell CD's that also include a video game or two...?
